10:12 AM ET 12.01 | Former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell said he is pleased with the reforms so far made by Penn State University officials following sanctions that were imposed by the NCAA in response to the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Mr. Mitchell was appointed to the position of athletics integrity monitor to keep track of the university's progress in complying with its Athletics Integrity Agreement with the NCAA and the Big Ten. "Based on our work to date, Penn State's Board of Trustees and its administration appear determined to implement, swiftly and in good faith, the recommendations for reform that were identified in the Freeh report and to fulfill the commitments that the University made in the AIA," Mr. Mitchell said in a statement. "Penn State has dedicated substantial time and resources to accomplishing these objectives. It is too soon to judge the ultimate result. But I believe that Penn State is off to a very good start."
